Fascinating read. Well-researched and written, I found this review of those horrible eight years mostly fair and balanced. The book provided an interesting look behind the scenes at all the internal turmoil within the Bush administration and how an unprepared President struggled to manage the personality clashes within his cabinet, domestic and foreign affairs, and an unregulated economy gearing up to implode. After finishing this book, I was stunned at the resiliency of this country to have survived so many attacks on so many fronts in such a short period of time.

This book opened my eyes to the tremendous conflict that Bush/Cheney experienced after 9/11 and the anthrax debacle. They were freaked' with paranoid in those first 6 months and wanted to appear in control and 'do something'. They did the best they could under the circumstances, IMO. I am not so critical against them today now that I better understand. Great read by a good writer. Balanced and fair. Definitely recommended...

It was fascinating to read the background of the Bush-Cheney white house. Some of the history about the lead up to the Iraq war seems to vary from what I saw.

Book started out as a fair and balanceed accoutinng of the Bush presidency. As I read further, the author lets his disdain for Bush and Cheney rise to the surface. After finishing the book, I have grave doubts as to the facts in the entire book.

This a very well-written and engaging book about the George W. Bush presidency that focuses primarily on the relationship between President Bush and Vice President Cheney. The book is worth reading just to develop a better understanding of the degree to which Cheney influenced (or in many instances did not influence) the decisions made by the president. An added bonus is that the book provides a nice history of the most important actions taken by President Bush. Just because we lived through these events doesn't mean we remember them well. I highly recommend the book!

Peter Baker begins before the beginning of both men's political careers and presents a highly lucid account of the Bush presidency. If either of these men or those years remain a black and white image in your memory this book will bring back the color in detail. I don't know if I would have cracked this book so soon upon receiving it, but the events in the news now really make it a must read for any other political/history junkies out there like myself.

So repukes are already trying to rewrite the Bush/Cheney debacle, huh? Those eight years of lies, mendacity, outright theft of the US treasury, murder, and treason are dressed up nice and pretty in this piece of trash. BARF.
